Juvenile Justice Center (cost overruns-toxic), CMHA new headquarters (cost overruns-disasterous "green" design), Forlani VA complex (indicted on federal corruption charges-see how TIF and Port monies manipulated)

If this article is to be believed, very little. Unfortunately, it probably is at least mostly correct.
Luckily they don't have it here, as far as I can tell, in fact much that isn't listed as organic is still really organic per local articlles, and I cook and bake mostly from scratch. I bake much too large a batch for me and share with my neighbors. A young Texas systems engineer neighbor says he can tell.

Life goes on. The city continues to move. Yesterday, it was sunny and warm. I was able to take the train to University Circle, and to swim at CWRU. And, then I walked along the empty bike lane that runs up Fairhill through the Doan Brook watershed. Flags were at half-staff at the Baldwin Water Plant. Shaker Square was decked out for the holidays.

Photo above shows construction standards for "new" Paul L. Dunbar school just south of St. Ignatius--see posts at REALNEO on Buhrer School for the insanity of this construction and gross waste of taxpayer $$$--carpetbaggers...

In a rare show of common sense, the Plain Dealer actually heeded the comments posted to a story:
When this came out--I felt the usual nausea: the Plain Dealer printing propaganda to support the Land Bank, though the numbers were so obviously bogus. I have been banned at the PD, so I rarely comment anymore. I chocked it up to the same old...

I will post more photos soon--I am compiling images from my neighborhood for a Brooklyn Centre bicentennial celebration 1812-2012. The little girl above may not appreciate the significance of Indpendence Day until she is older--her family emigrated from Burundi. It has been very typical for new Americans to arrive via the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood.

Thank you today for a beautiful ceremony and a great family event. For all history buffs--Woodland Cemetery is a must visit destination. The Woodland Cemetery Foundation and today's volunteers put together a very special and touching family event.

The woman's activist son had been helping others fight to keep their homes, possibly the bank was retaliating, the auction was scheduled even though she'd been told an executive would work with her, but the community rallied behind her; and lo and behold, they changed their mind. Even worked out new payment arrangement so she pays less.

We live on this body of water.
It's beautiful and blue and inviting, but I am afraid of it. Do I really want to eat fish out of Lake Erie? (The answer is NO).
At the same time, I am definitely fooling myself, if I think that the fish or other food sold to me at the West Side market or even by a higher end purveyor has any better provenance.

The re-imagining hype towards promoting local food, healthy living and reversing "food deserts" looks like a huge ruse to me (a tax strategy for land holding and covering up failed real estate investment schemes). Sure--it all sounds hunky-dory and idealistic, and there are some elements of the "vision" that have merit, but large-scale food production in NEO is not feasible.

Repubicans worth reading about: Washington Post OpEd as syndicated by Detroit News. Hopefully Plain Dealer will pick up on this OpEd.

Taking a break from the usual fare here--I will share a book with REALNEO. At the recommendation of a young girl, I ordered Good Fortune by Noni Carter through the library. I was hesistant at first. I'll admit that I am weary of the recently popular, go-to thematic choices for young adult literature--vampires, gangs, and slavery.

A beautiful night for CLE--as the heavenly choir of St. Olaf performed for a capacity crowd of 700+ at Mary Queen of Peace (formerly Our Lady of Good Counsel) in Old Brooklyn. For Old Brooklyn and Brooklyn Centre residents--getting there was as easy as a brisk winter's walk.
